  • Pentominoes - The Perfect Mathematical Puzzle

The second summer session of nPower Girls took place at Clark College, Main Campus on August 13 & 14. Teachers from Castle Rock and View Ridge Middle Schools played Pentominoes, and in the photo above are shown comparing notes with their colleagues from Naselle-Gray’s River, Mt Pleasant and Mill A, with the goal of determining how many shapes they could construct from five differently-sized squares.

ESD112’s Math and Science Coordinators Sue Bluestein and Vickei Hrdina initiated the August sessions by giving the nPower teachers an online Visual Spatial Intelligence test. The teachers will administer the same test in their own classrooms, and will then provide activities to increase the spatial skills of their students.
